iPhone. Round 2.0

So the iPhone 3G comes out tomorrow, but since the 2.0 firmware was let out a little bit early today, I of course installed it immediately! I was using a hacked 1.1.4 firmware previously. There were several reasons that I have been wanting 2.0 for a long time. The biggest being the Exchange support and Enterprise WiFi.

Best New Features
– Exchange Support
– App Store
– WPA2 Enterprise WiFi
– CISCO VPN

Apps that I initially installed on day 1
– Twitterific
– AIM
– PayPal
– Evernote
– eBay
– SmugPost
– LocalPicks
– Pandora
– Remote
– Monkey Ball!!

I will say that I miss the complete customization that you have with the hacked firmware, but it is so much better to be able to sync all my email and contacts wirelessly at work. I work for CISCO, so I am also very much looking forward to using my VPN on the phone, once that is all working I will be truly mobile. So far for a day -1 review, I would say the new firmware is going to be very nice to use day to day, and will get a lot more people moved to the iPhone platform.
